Letter from Richard Davis Webb, Dublin, [Ireland], to William Lloyd Garrison, 1846 Sept[ember] 29
In this letter to William Lloyd Garrison, Richard Davis Webb discusses travel plans for Garrison. He writes that the distance from Dublin to Cork is "about 160 miles English - one third of which can be travelled by railway" before Garrison returns to Dublin to travel to Liverpool. He also describes going to Belfast before advising Garrison that while in Belfast he should "be as clear as possible, in explaining the grounds in which the American [Anti-Slavery] Society stand, as distinguished from the Liberty Party". Webb then lists some letters he is sending Garrison, including one written by his "cousin Maria Webb whom you will see." He also shares his and his brother, James, disappointment that Garrison is only in Dublin for 3 days, writing "I dont think George Thompson has used us fairly." In the postscript, he asks Garrison to send a letter from Belfast so that he can meet him at the railway terminus on his return to Dublin.
